ย 
ย 
โœ๏ธ Team By Team Thoughts & Info:
ย 
1๏ธโƒฃ Argentina ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ทย 
ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท Managed by Lionel Scaloni since 2018, the coach tends to adopt a range of different formations.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท Popular with the fans for bringing back a number of the old guard, he increased his popularity yet further with their 2021 Copa America win ๐Ÿ†.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท Villaโ€™s Emi Martinez will be the goalie ๐Ÿฅ…. River Plateโ€™s Armani should be well dressed on the bench ๐Ÿช‘.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท Cristian Romero from Spurs ($5.5m) and former Man City player Nicolas Otamendi ($5m), now at Benfica, will probably be the centre backs albeit Man United midget Lisandro Martinez ($6m) has also now put himself in the mix. Tagliafica of Lyon ($5.5m) should be the attacking LWB.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท Midfield boss Rodrigo de Paul (ยฃ5m) of Athletico Madrid will be seemingly be nailed ๐Ÿ”จ and could be a bargain.ย  ๐Ÿ‘ผ Angel Di Maria comes in at $8.5m and is proven quality. Heโ€™s got 4 goals โšฝ๏ธ in his last 7 matches.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท Lionel Messi ($10.5m) will obviously be nailedโ€ผ๏ธ Lautaro Martinez ($8m) and Dybala (also $8m) will lead the attack and are both obviously high quality players. Man Cityโ€™s Alvarez comes in slightly cheaper at $6.5m. Some strike force thatโ€ผ๏ธ
ย 
๐Ÿ–Š On Pensโ€ฆMessi ($10.5m) then Lautaro Martinez ($8m)
ย 
๐ŸŽฒ Odds to win the ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ† = 5/1
ย 
ย 
ย 
2๏ธโƒฃ Mexico ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ Managed by Tata Martino. When 1st appointed he enjoyed an amazing 11 match unbeaten run ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ- which included winning the CONCACAF Gold Cup ๐Ÿ† in 2019.ย  Heโ€™s been under a lot more pressure recently though and fans have become somewhat annoyed by his perceived defensive approach and with an ageing squad. He likes to stick to a 4๏ธโƒฃ at the back formation.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ The Mexicans have been knocked out of their last 7 World Cups in the Round of 16 stage so have a good record of getting out of their group but going no further.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ Club Americaโ€™s Guillermo Ochoa ($5m) incredibly looks set to play in goals for his 5th World Cupโ€ผ๏ธ
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ In defence Alvarez should be at right back + Gallardo ($4.5m) at left back. Cesar Montes ($4m) & Nestor Araujo ($4.5m) will compete for the 2 centre back spots.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ Edson Alvarez ($5m) should be the CDM. Hector Herrera ($4.5m) plays like a box ๐Ÿ“ฆ to box ๐Ÿ“ฆ midfielder and will be one of the first names on the teamsheet. Napoliโ€™s Lozano ($6m) should be on the left wing but is classified as a striker.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ Wolves Jimenez ($6.5m) would usually be the no.9 but has been out of form so could come under pressure from Henry Martin of Club America.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ–Š On Pensโ€ฆJimenez ($6.5m) then Pineda.
ย 
๐ŸŽฒ Odds to win the ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ† = 100/1
ย 
ย 
ย 
3๏ธโƒฃ Poland ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Managed by Czeslaw Michniewicz who led his nation to Qatar via the play offs (beating Sweden ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช). Theyโ€™ve now qualified for 4 successive majors tournament for the 1st time in their history.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Juveโ€™s Szczesny ($5.5m) will be in goals and will feature in his 5th major tournament for the Polesโ€ผ๏ธ
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Bednarek ($4.5m), Glik ($4m) & Kiwior ($4m) should be nailed in defence. Villaโ€™s Matt Cash ($4m) ๐Ÿ’ท is also competing for the right full back slot.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Krychowiak ($6m) and Fiorentinaโ€™s Zurkowski ($5.5m) look nailed ๐Ÿ”จ in midfield along with Napoliโ€™s Zielinski ($6.5m)ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Class act Robert Lewandowski ($10m) will obviously lead the attack. The Barca hitman will be looking to make an impact on the biggest stage of all.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ–Š On Pensโ€ฆLewandowski then Piatek.
ย 
๐ŸŽฒ Odds to win the ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ† = 100/1
ย 
ย 
4๏ธโƒฃ Saudi Arabia ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆย

ย 
๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Saudi Arabia are managed by Eddie Howe ๐Ÿฆ“โ€ฆsorry, Herve Renard ๐Ÿ˜‰โ€ฆthe experienced and well qualified manager who won the AFCON with both Ivory Coast ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฎ and Zambia ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฒ.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ The Saudis qualified well for the tournament via a group that contained decent opposition in Japan ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต and Australia ๐Ÿฆ˜. 13 of their squad play for the same domestic club side (Al Hilal Riyadh) who are currently 4th in the leagueโ€ผ๏ธ
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ It should be Al-Owais ($4m) in nets ๐Ÿฅ….
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Al-Bulaihi, Madu ($3m) and Al-Amri ($4m) are likely to compete for the centre back slots. Iโ€™ve not been able to work out who is likely to play in the wing back roles as a mix of players seem to have shared game time during the qualifiers.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Captain Al-Faraj ($4m) usually operates as an advanced midfielder but is versatile so can play deeper too.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Up top Al-Buraikan is thought to be 1st choice but Al Dawsari should also feature.
ย 
๐Ÿ–Š On Pensโ€ฆAl Dawsari ($4.5m) then Al-Shehri
ย 
๐ŸŽฒ Odds to win the ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ† = 750/1
ย 
ย 
๐ŸšถArgentina should on paper walk this group but it could be tight for that second spot between Mexico & Poland.ย
